With the 2016 Great Eastern Yeo’s S.League season expecting to kick-off mid-February, the boys underwent a series of fitness tests to prepare for the start of the season.
Tensiomyography (TMG) Testing:
Tensiomyography assesses muscle mechanical response based on radial muscle belly displacement induced by the single electrical stimulus.
It is a non invasive method to assess muscle contractile properties. It is also able to provide information on muscle stiffness, contraction velocity and types of muscles fibre.
VO2 max is to assess the maximal amount of oxygen consumption of the body.
Maximal oxygen consumption reflects the aerobic physical fitness of the individual, and is an important determinant of their endurance capacity during prolonged, sub-maximal exercise.
The purpose of this test is to determine acceleration, maximum running speed and speed endurance, depending on the distance run.
The test involves running a single maximum sprint over a set distance, with time recorded. After a standardized warm up, the test is conducted over a distance of 20 meters and repeated 6 times.
The timing gates can measure the time to run each split distances (e.g. 5, 10, 20m) during the same run, and then acceleration and peak velocity can also be determined.
Upa Yoga is a simple yet powerful system of exercise that activates the joints, muscles and energy system.
YoYo Intermittent Recovery Run Level 2:
The Yo-Yo Intermittent Test is a test of the ability to undertake intermittent exercise.
The players have a short 10 seconds active break after each 40m (2 x 20 m runs), with the speed increasing at intervals.
The test evaluates an individual’s ability to repeatedly perform intervals over a prolonged period of time.
2.4km Trial Test:
Trial test was conducted to test the players fitness level before next week test.
